    just wondering if you’d share the heats you used? I’ve been practicing with old motherboards. I’m in hawaii and i’ve had tons and tons of water damaged people come through. If i can recover data just to back it up i would, but i also read if you want a chip from a different phone to work properly you’d have to reprogram it.

    but i’m just trying to successfully move the chips at the moment

      Thanks for the comment. The heating temperature is generally related to the brand of hot air gun, environmental temperature and the material of PCB holder. It is hard to specify the detailed temperature.
